Enriching Our Community
As a nonprofit organization, Saint Therese pledges to act as a resource, improve access to care, identify and address evolving health care needs and promote healthier lifestyles for seniors through health education and prevention activities.
We document our work each year in the Saint Therese Gratitude Report. Not only does this publication validate our status as a nonprofit organization, we’re able to share heartwarming stories and inspire acts of great love, kindness and compassion. Read this year’s Gratitude Report to learn how generous donations help make a difference for our residents and our communities through our programs and activities, including:
Each year, Saint Therese offers the following scholarship opportunities:
Youth Volunteer Scholarship
Saint Therese honors volunteer service and encourages intergenerational relationships between youth and seniors with the annual Youth Volunteer Scholarship Award. Students, 15-18 years old, are asked to submit essays describing the impact of their volunteer experiences. A volunteer committee judges the essays and selects two recipients to be honored for their service, each with a $2,000 educational scholarship.
White Rose Scholarship
Inspired by our mission, Saint Therese encourages our nursing employees to further their education and improve upon their knowledge of senior care. We award several thousand dollars in scholarships to employees each year through the Saint Therese Foundation White Rose Scholarship.
Mark Stanfield Memorial Scholarship
To honor our late colleague and friend, physical therapist Mark Stanfield, and his commitment to physical therapy, seniors and personal development, the Saint Therese Foundation partnered with Mark’s family to establish the Mark Stanfield Memorial Scholarship to support continuing education. Recipients of the $500 annual award are full-time physical therapists with Ascend Rehabilitation who emulate Mark’s commitment to an exceptional level of compassionate care and a drive for continued excellence.
